Musée de la Vie romantique, Paris
(3.8/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Devoted to the artists, writers, and composers of the Romantic period, Musée de la Vie romantique was the Paris base of Dutch-born painter Ary Scheffer (1795–1858). For decades, Scheffer and his daughter hosted Friday evening salons, attracting the likes of George Sand, Frederic Chopin, Eugène Delacroix, Franz Liszt, Gioacchino Rossini, and singer Pauline Viardot. Later in the century, Charles Dickens, Ivan Turgueniev, and Charles Gounod attended regularly. The museum displays numerous mementos of these luminaries, as well as Romantic-era paintings, sculptures, and objets d'art.

  • Ideal place for a romantic rendezvous-lovers. Nice little garden, small museum, small terrace intimate for a drink. Free

  • The museum itself is tiny and not worth that if you are interested in the current temporary exhibition. But the place is worth a visit. It is the former home of the writer Georges Sand, in a lovely building. In summer, you can have tea in the garden, totally forgetting you're in Paris. A place in very romantic effect not to be missed if you are in the neighborhood.

  • picturesque small museum with beautiful history and teahouse in the silence of a colourful garden. Beautiful exhibitions on literature as now about Baudelaire. Time that it climbs out of the shadow of major museums. Just do it and the tactile romance.

  • Artist's retreat, complete with long shaded walkway, courtyard and outbuildings. The rooms are all decorated with authentic styles and materials. There are lots of artifacts to be seen involving the author George Sand and painter Ary Scheffer. Worthwhile if you have an interest in 19th century life in Paris.
  • The most romantic and idilic museum in Paris. The entrance is free. After visiting the museum you can hang out in the garden, there is a little coffee shop
  • Kind of interesting, but I don't think it was necessarily worth visiting during a short stay in Paris.
  • A charming place with a small tea room in the courtyard. The museum is tiny so it is a quick visit.
  • Small interesting museum, mainly focusing on Georges sand and her feminist past. Lovely garden when you can sit and have a wonderful cup of tea
